If audiobooks featuring romance (with sex) are your thing...

Iambik Audiobooks released their latest romance collection today with some teasing excerpts on their Tumblr and Twitter feeds.  This collection is comprised of five titles that may be purchased separately for $6.99 each or you can save money by purchasing the group as a set for $24.99.

The five titles are:  Around the World in Stilettos by Natalie-Jane Revell, Daughter of Darkness by Janet Woods, The Lady Soldier by Michelle Styles and Kate Allan, Nanny Behaving Badly by Judy Jarvie and Reversing over Liberace by Jane Lovering.

As the narrator of one of the books, Nanny Behaving Badly by Judy Jarvie, I'm just glad that my excerpt was in the written form.  The lovely Miette who, among other things, maintains the Iambik blog, had asked for sexy/steamy excerpts from the various narrators in order to titillate potential listeners.  Phew!  I'm really glad I sent her text excerpts.  Miette posted the following excerpt on Iambik's tumblr/twitter feed here.  From Nanny Behaving Badly:

“Their mouths met with more promise than she’d bargained for. Desire’s voltage wired her spine as her world rocked and spun as he kissed her, taking her over the edge with him.
Everything inside her melted. She reached up to hold his neck, tug him close as he deepened the kiss and their tongues told of desire unmasked. Mouths flirted and tangoed and told that each of them understood. He clasped her closer, then his hands smoothed down her spine.
Groaning with spiralling need, he trailed kisses on her neck, behind her ear.
She needed Lyle so badly it bared the weak and vulnerable spot deep inside.
‘I want you!’ he whispered.
‘Me too.’
Trust me, folks, that was one of the milder sections that I read.  No porn here, just good clean sex.  However, our own Irishman, Tadhg Hynes, sent Miette an audio excerpt from the book he narrated, Daughter of Darkness.  Miette dutifully posted Tadhg's reading here.  You'll just have to listen for yourself to find out what happens.  Miette did post a warning for anyone who might be listening at work. (wink)

"NSFSWC: Not suitable for the speakers on your work computers.  Unless you work for the type of place where “the hot flood of his passion” is on your meeting agenda.  It’s not our place to judge.  Enjoy the romance!"

Just fair warning for anyone who happens to be accustomed to blaring whatever comes out of their speakers.  Neither Miette nor Iambik can be held accountable.  So, for all of you romance fans who like your stories a little steamy/spicy, too, check out Tadhg's reading (feel free to smoke afterwards) and then head to our website.  

In the mean time, here's a little something to set the mood...


  1. Pretty steamy stuff. I'll check this out.

  2. Ok, I'm in Firefox, and now it seems to work.

    What I've been trying to say is ...

    I couldn't resist, and listened to it, and it sure is hot stuff. Whew!

    Nice video, too.

  3. Tadhg is a wonderful narrator!

    Glad you liked the video. :)
